I live and paint in Brooklyn, N.Y. and split time in Cairo N.Y. with my wife Elizabeth and our children Sorley and Saskia and our recently adopted puppy Aggie. I started painting when I was seven, taking lessons from a local artist where I grew up. I painted still lifes and landscapes, some which I still have. I moved to New York in 1995 and started painting in oils for the first time. I painted on wood, cardboard, canvas or anything that was flat I could find, learning and exploring the medium in hopes of finding my "own voice". This site includes a selection of recent paintings and ones from different styles and themes I explored.

I am looking forward to evolving and continuing my body of work.

I just put music on and paint...  

Thanks for visiting.
